Essie Stroke of Brilliance


Today I layered Essie Stroke of Brilliance over Zoya Song.  I wasn't ready to remove Song and was excited to try Stroke of Brilliance - so I threw it on:)

Stroke of Brilliance is from Essie's Luxeffects Collection.  In my opinion, Stroke of Brilliance didn't get as much attention when the Luxeffects Collection first came out.  All I heard about was A Cut Above and Set in Stones.  Then it seemed like all of a sudden I was seeing Stroke of Brilliance pop up on Pinterest and blogs.  It's such a pretty blue glitter and I think it looks great over Zoya Song.

Stroke of Brilliance is packed full of glitter.  You only need one coat to cover your entire nail with glitter pieces. 

I received Stroke of Brilliance from Amy at Polish & Such from her recent giveaway and I was so excited because I had it on my wish list for quite some time.  I am so happy with this polish and am excited to play with it more.  I recently saw a jelly sandwich using this and OPI Don't Touch my Tutu which I intend to try soon:)

  1. I think they released Stroke of Brilliance a while after the original 5 polishes in the Luxe Effects (the silver glitter, the pink glitter, As Gold as It Gets, Pure Pearlification, and Shine of the Times) It sure seems that way in the stores in my area, anyway! Seems like it showed up months after the other ones.

    1. Well that would make sense. Yes, I only remember those originals you listed - I bet it did show up later.

  8. Yep Stroke of Brilliance came out later on like PInk Pamalamma said. I can't wait to see it in person... I haven't seen it anywhere in Canada yet :(

  10. Absolutely love those polishes paired together!

    I own all of the polishes in the Luxeeffects and I do believe that Stroke of Brillance is my favorite!

    1. This is the only Luxeffects I have. I have thought about getting the rest but it seems like I have dupes. Thanks for visiting:)
